Rangers fans adopt new anthem after legendary Steven Gerrard interview

Rangers fans have a new anthem after an instantly legendary interview by manager Steven Gerrard had everyone at Ibrox singing Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline in unison.

The Ibrox gaffer was speaking to the press after the club’s 1-0 win over Livingston at the Tony Macaroni with Alfredo Morelos scoring a late winner.

The match was marred by Steven Gerrard being sent to the stands by referee John Beaton for remonstrating about a quite ridiculous penalty shout in the first half.

Gerrard was caught on camera losing the rag at Beaton – who refused to speak to him – before the whistler flashed two yellow cards in his direction.

Beaton yellow-carded striker Alfredo Morelos for simulation despite replays showing the striker was caught by Livi keeper Max Stryek and should’ve been awarded a penalty.

Asked after the match about Morelos’ reputation and any fears Gerrard has that this might be influencing refereeing decisions, here’s what Gerrard had to say.

“Don’t worry about Alfredo, he’s just scored the winner he’s dancing around in there with no top on to Sweet Caroline,” said Gerrard [Sky Sports].

In the full interview, Gerrard would also finish the round of questioning by adding “I do enjoy Sweet Caroline after a win”.

Sound like Rangers fans have a new anthem ahead of 55 with the club’s supporters certainly building some playlist ahead of the moment happening:

The win puts Rangers within four points of title glory with the Gers capable of winning their first league championship in a decade this weekend should results go their way.

Despite being sent off in the victory over Livingston, Rangers fans still lauded their manager for standing up to the awful officiating we’re accustomed to in Scotland.
